Leonardo and Warhol Meet at the Crypt of San Sepolcro

Leonardo and Warhol Meet at the Crypt of San Sepolcro
#Exhibitions

A 400-year-long voyage, led by two exceptional guides, retracing the architectural and technological innovations which, starting with the mind of Leonardo, brought Milan skyscrapers and its Bosco Verticale - The Vertical Woods. An itinerary in the city lived in, designed and imagined by the genius from Vinci, accompanies visitors all the way up to The Last Supper by Andy Warhol, the work with which, in 1986, the father of Pop Art reinterpreted Leonardo’s masterpiece. Refined setting for this initiative, part of the celebrations of the 500th Anniversary of Leonardo’s death, the Crypt of San Sepolcro. Starting in the Sala Sottofedericiana of the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana, the exhibition starts with a multimedia installation which, with the help of stunning images, guides visitors through the Milan imagined by Leonardo himself. In this journey, which winds along through various themes, the public will discover the use of water, the relationship with the land and nature, but also Milan and music, as well as the sort of solidarity suggested by the work of The Last Supper. The itinerary runs down the corridor of Leonardo to end in the crypt of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, a place to which the master felt quite connected and which he indicated in a map in the Codex Atlanticus as being the true centre of the city.
